For Students

The University of Toronto Robotics Institute supports U of T Engineering’s undergraduate minor in Robotics & Mechatronics, an Engineering Science major in Robotics, and a graduate emphasis in Robotics & Mechatronics.

Currently, the Robotics Institute does not grant degrees directly. Students interested in robotics at U of T should refer to the admissions websites for the individual partner departments and institutes:

Undergraduate Opportunities in Robotics

Minor in Robotics & Mechatronics

This area of study is open to all undergraduate students in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering who are interested in pursuing a specialty in Robotics & Mechatronics. The program provides students with both introductory and advanced experiential learning courses. Students are admitted to the minor in Robotics & Mechatronics through their home department.

Engineering Science Major in Robotics

This major is open to all Engineering Science students. After students complete first and second year, students may pursue a major in Robotics Engineering. The program is designed with a special focus on system integration through design and research opportunities. Students must first be enrolled in the Engineering Science program before pursuing a major in robotics engineering. Visit the Division of Engineering Science for more information.


Graduate Opportunities in Robotics

Emphasis in Robotics & Mechatronics

Pursue research-intensive advanced studies in Robotics & Mechatronics at the Master of Applied Science (MASc) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) level.

Graduate students can also customize their Master of Engineering (MEng) experience with an emphasis in Robotics & Mechatronics. Graduate students have the opportunity to work with some of the most respected researchers in the field, and will gain knowledge in areas that are key to the development of smart and high performance systems, including control systems, signal and image processing, dynamics and modeling, and systems integration.

Students who complete the requirements of the emphasis will earn a certificate of completion at the end of their studies.

To qualify for admission to the MEng program at U of T Engineering, you must have a four-year undergraduate degree in engineering with a minimum mid-B to B+ average in your final two years.
